Fertility Massage is a cutting edge field, with far reaching benefits that are still being explored.
Fertility Massage may promote detoxification, enhance reproductive circulation, increase organ oxygenation, promote visceral alignment, decrease pelvic scar tissue, and combat stress.
Diet and supplementation can create massive changes in how we feel, our resistance to sickness, our hormonal balance, our skin clarity, and our longevity. Simple changes to how we eat and the nutrients we absorb can have profound impact on the health and balance of our bodies.
Previously available only to Pulling Down the Moon staff, continuing education in the field of Fertility Massage is now available to Massage Therapists across the country. Classes are available online as well as in person, and lay the foundation for training in the full Fertility Enhancing Massage Protocol.
"Meredith is not only very knowledgeable, highly skilled, and intelligent, she is passionate about her work and helping patients through massage therapy. I observed her with patients and she showed a deep level of compassion and empathy for these patients who are not only undergoing medical treatments, but enduring the extreme amount of stress and anxiety related to their inability to conceive...
I have come to gain a true appreciation of the benefits offered to patients with the merging of western therapies and holistic therapies. I think that Meredith Nathan has created a massage protocol that I believe wholeheartedly will compliment the therapies I treat my patients with and enhance their success while hopefully decreasing the stress level they are facing as they undergo the difficult and arduous treatments we prescribe."
